By R. F. Kuang
Hayley: Babel is a dark historical fantasy that examines the deception ingrained in academia. R.F. Kuang tackles colonialism through different facets of linguistics and translation, her characters unpacking intergenerational trauma while they navigate a world and system built by imperialist monsters. A healthy helping of darkness along with academia, “Babel” brings readers beyond just the dark academia aesthetic and fully engrosses its audience in the danger that is involved in the act of translation, and the brokenness of academia.
